Calling all saints! (That means you!) Join us in November for many wonderful celebrations, to serve our neighbor, and to give thanks to our God.
Next Sunday, All Saints Sunday (11/6), bring a long stem flower to help commemorate those saints who touched your life with love and nurtured faith in you. We will give thanks for being one through faith, part of the catholic (universal) church of Christ! Worship with us at 10:45 am.
